Honoring the Unsung Heroes of the CNMI’s Tourism Industry

The 5th Annual Gala Night is spearheaded by Fiesta Resort & Spa Saipan general manager Wendy Herring and Kanoa Resort general manager Martin Jambor. It is a moment to honor all the hotel housekeepers and to recognize them as the “unsung heroes” of the CNMI’s tourism industry.

During the program, Herring said “You are the unsung heroes of the hotel. [With] the work that you do day in and day out, with the beautiful smiles on your faces, please know that you are appreciated.”

The International Housekeeping Week is a week-long celebration globally which aims to put the spotlight on the important roles of housekeepers that they take part in the tourism industry.

From September 8 to September 12, hotel housekeepers were treated to breakfast, engaged in fun activities and they had a cake and tea party.

Cherilyn Manalo, one of the housekeepers at the gala night who finds fulfillment in her job said, “I love the sense of having to make tourists feel like they have a home here on Saipan.”
